This is a small collection of wonderful microphones that
I have collected over the years. many more still on my wish list of
course, however, amongst the few that I have I am sure you will find
some very interesting examples.
All of these microphones work!
my own Ribbon mics, installing new ribbon elements where
necessary. The material I use for the
ribbons is Aluminium leaf as used by signwriters. It is very light
and difficult to work with. Possibly it is lighter than the original
ribbon material, therefore very delicate but the results are
wonderful, especially in my Aiwa mic.
I produce music for television and
I also write/record/produce my own original albums.
I still use some of these mics in my recordings, in
particular the Aiwa and sometimes the film Industries model.
I have many other mics, modern and otherwise, those
pictured here are
the one's I consider most "classic" in my collection. I also have
quite a few tape recorders, Revox G36, A77, B77, Uher 4200, Otari
MX5050, Tascam 38 as well as a Mini Moog synth.
